YUMI lash lift and tint FAQ | Prép Beauty Parlour |

By | Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

Wanting to take a break from eyelash extensions, or have you tried them and they just weren’t for you? Although we absolutely love lash extensions at Prép, we understand that it is not for everyone! That is why we also offer the YUMI lash lift and tint treatment at our salon in downtown, Vancouver! Before you try them out, here are some frequently asked questions about the lash lift and tint…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Q: How long does one treatment of the YUMI lash lift last?
A: One treatment lasts you 8-12 weeks! The tint portion of the service tends to fade first, so some ladies choose to come in to re-tint their lashes earlier. ♡ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Q: Is it like eyelash extensions where I have to come in for ‘fill’ every few weeks?
A: No, unlike the eyelash extensions you do not need to come in every few weeks, or every 8-12 weeks. When the lift begins to fall, it is very subtle and happens over time. You won’t notice a dramatic change in your lashes. However, many ladies fall in love with the treatment and we often see them back every few months! ♡ 

Q: How long does the service take?
A: The YUMI lash lift and tint takes about 75 minutes in total to complete.♡ 

Q: Can it be done while on latisse?
A: Absolutely! After using growth serums like EyEnvy, the lift results are much more dramatic and make your lashes look very luscious. It is recommended to use products like latisse or EyEnvy for 2-3 months before getting the lift for optimal results!

Pictured below is a Yumi lash lift and tint after the use of EyEnvy for a few months. ♡ 

Q: Will the YUMI lash lift add length to my lashes? Will it make them longer?
A: No. Although the YUMI lash lift will not make your lashes longer, it ‘lifts’ them from the root, which make your lashes look longer and fuller. The tint also makes a big difference for ladies with blonde or brunette lashes. ♡ 

Q: What do I do for aftercare?
A: The YUMI lash lift is very low maintenance! The only aftercare that is essential is to not get your lashes wet for 24 hours (although 48 hours is recommended). We also carry 2 brands of keratin aftercare…. using the keratin nourish mascara after getting a YUMI lash lift will prolong the life of your lashes, hydrate them, and get rid of any crossing of your lashes that you may notice. Although not necessary, it is highly recommended! Especially after more that one YUMI lash lift treatment. After your appointment, we will send you off with a mascara wand, so make sure to comb your lashes out once or twice a day. ♡ 

Q: Do you have to already have long lashes to get a YUMI lash lift?
A: No you don’t! Ladies with shorter lashes certainly can get YUMI lash lifts as well… the results may be a bit more subtle though. However, after getting a lash lift the real length of your lashes really come out! ♡ 

Q: Will the YUMI lash lift damage my lashes?
A: The YUMI brand of lash lift is the best in the market, and contains no harsh chemicals. Your lashes definitely won’t be damaged afterwards, but it is certainly worthwhile to use the keratin mascara afterwards to keep them healthy and hydrated, while keeping your YUMI look fresh! ♡ 

Q: How do I prepare for my YUMI lash lift appointment?
A: Please arrive to your appointment with no eye makeup on. ♡ 

Q: Can I still wear mascara after I get a YUMI lash lift?
A: Yes you can! After the 24-48 hour window after your appointment, you are free to continue your makeup routine as normal! ♡ 

Q: What if I want a more natural and subtle looking lift?
A: We offer 3 different ‘sizes’ of lifts: small, medium, and large. The larger the bump on the silicone pad, the more subtle the lift and visa versa. Pictured below, is a YUMI lash lift in progress using a small silicone pad (the most dramatic lift size). ♡ 

Q: Does it hurt?
A: Not at all! Most people fall asleep during the appointment. ♡ 

Q: Are the YUMI lash lift products vegan/ cruelty free?
A: Yes they are! ♡ 

Q: Why do the lashes look wet in the after photos?
A: After we remove the tint, we apply a keratin nourishing mascara to your lashes. This is why they look wet! After the 24 hour initial period, your lashes will be looking light and fluffy. ♡ 

Q: Does the YUMI Lash lift service include a tint as well? Or is there an extra charge for the tint?
A: Yes! The YUMI Lash lift includes a complimentary tint. However, there are definitely some ladies who decide they do not want to get the tint when they already have dark lashes. ♡ 

Q: Can I get eyelash extensions shortly after getting a YUMI Lash lift?
A: Unfortunately not, your lashes will be too lifted to apply the extensions. However, if you decide to get lash extensions while your lashes are still lifted, give us a call and we can book you in to relax your lashes. This is about a 15 minute process that will essentially ‘relax’ your lashes to their baseline curl. ♡ 

Q: Can I react to YUMI products? Can I be allergic?
A: No you can’t- unless you are allergic to the glue (which is a sugar base). ♡ 

Q: What is the difference between a lash lift and an eyelash perm?
A: A YUMI Lash lift works to lift your lashes up from the base. This will make them look longer! A eyelash perm typically will ‘curl’ them from the middle of your lashes… which could actually make them look shorter.

Q: How can I book an appointment?
A: To book with one of our talented YUMI lash lift technicians, you can call or text us at 604-764-6452. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions as well! ♡

Everything you need to know about the Yumi Lash Lift and Tint | Prép Beauty Parlour |

By | Prép Beauty Parlour, YUMI | No Comments

Thinking about getting a Yumi lash lift and tint but don’t know if it’s going to be right for you? Here is everything you need to know about the Yumi lash lift and tint done at Prép Beauty Parlour in Vancouver.

The Yumi lash lift and tint works with your natural lashes to lift them and give a longer and more volumized look to your lashes. This does not mean that you need to already have long lashes to get a Yumi lash lift though! Ladies with shorter lashes can most definitely get a Yumi lash lift as well- it may just be on the more subtle side.

So what’s the process?

First, your technician will start with laying down gel pads.

Next, we use three different “sizes” of lifts- small, medium, and large. The smaller the silicone pad, the more dramatic the lift…

Pictured here is a YUMI lash lift in progress… all the lashes are now laid down on the silicone pad, and are lifting!

 

 

 

 

The lift also includes a complimentary lash tint- which can make all the difference especially for ladies with light blonde or brunette lashes! The tint paired with the lift brings out the true length in your natural lashes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The entire Yumi lash lift and tint service takes about one hour and 15 minutes but better yet- results last 8-12 weeks!

Many ladies think that they need to already have long and thick lashes to get a Yumi lash lift and tint… but that is certainly not true! Ladies with shorter lashes also rock the lift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ladies with long and luxious lashes have AMAZING results after getting a Yumi lash lift! Some with darker lashes, choose not to get the tint to keep the appointment short and sweet. ♡ Take a look at the difference after a YUMI Lash Lift and tint for longer lashes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what about aftercare? After care for a Yumi lash lift is simple! You cannot get yours lashes wet for 24 hours (although 48 hours is recommended) but after that window- you are good to go! At the end of your service, you will be sent off with a little mascara brush… give your lashes a brush everyday!  Although optional, (but recommend) apply the YUMI Keratin Mascara twice daily to your lashes to keep them nourished, hydrated and healthy. The Keratin Mascara also prolongs the life of your lash lift, to maximize results! Feel free to continue with your normal makeup routine! Cut down time on your morning routine by waking up with beautiful lashes that are ready for the day!

Book with one of our five talented YUMI Lash technicians at Prép Beauty Parlour!

Staff feature- Makeup/lash artist: Mika McInnes | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Prép Beauty Parlour, Technicians | No Comments

Hey babes! We have a brand new feature on our Prép Beauty Parlour blog… staff features! Our first feature will be for our amazing boss lady, and the director of beauty: Mika!

Mika, the owner of Prép Beauty Parlour, began her journey in the beauty industry in 2001 when she attended Blanche MacDonald for their makeup program and returned in 2005 to complete the aesthetics program.

Before Prép Beauty Parlour, Mika worked in a salon (which she actually got fired from…). One of her very first jobs was working for a Vancouver fishery, where her role was to get salmon and take out their eggs. Needless to say, she has accomplished so much, and gained so much success since 2005.

Eventually, Mika decided she wanted a change so she decided to move to Vancouver, from Port Coquitlam, and began working in a real estate office as the front desk manager. This real estate office is where she met Jay, her husband and business partner. “I met him on the first day… fell in love with him immediately and thought- I’m going to marry this man… had I not been fired, I wouldn’t have met Jay and I wouldn’t have the life I have now.” 

“Once we got together, he pushed me to do what I loved and helped me 100% open up the first Prép Beauty Parlour that was located at Hornby and Nelson, in beautiful downtown Vancouver.”

In 2010, The Studio by Mika Does Makeup (soon to be known as Prép Beauty Parlour) first opened its doors. At the time, Mika began The Studio with only two employees. Flash forward to nine years later, she currently employees over twenty staff, and private contractors. 

Not only is Mika is the owner/director of Prép Beauty Parlour in Downtown Vancouver and an extremely talented makeup artist… starting in in 2017, she started specializing in Yumi Lash Lifts and does up to 5 lash lifts per day.

“I love making people feel good about themselves and giving them confidence. Doing Yumi Lash lifts comes naturally to me and I can do it in my sleep… same goes for makeup.”

“I am so proud of the staff that we have had over the years (past and current.) I have met so many wonderful people over the past nine years… I love creating a work place for young ladies where they are free to be themselves and can be creative while at work, and essentially be their own boss.”

From grad makeup, bridal makeup to Yumi lash lifts, Mika is the best at what she does. 

Check out a couple makeup looks that Mika has done at Prép Beauty Parlour throughout the years…
